We have 90mins now, so please arrive between 6:00 and 6:30 to meet up, have a warm up, do some shooting practice etc, ready for a 6:30 kick off. We play until 7:30. We often head to the pub afterwards for food and/or a drink.

The first session is free as a taster but then the weekly fee is £7.50. 

FOOTBALL V HOMOPHOBIA FIFA 21 CUP

We, in partnership with Sussex FA, BN1 Gaming and Football.v.Homophobia are running a FIFA 21 Tournament on PlayStation, Xbox and PC on Saturday 27 February 2021 at 11am. 

Usually ourselves and Sussex FA compete in exhibition matches during February to show support for Football.v.Homophobia month of action. 

However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are taking this year’s activities online. We’re also inviting the rest of the county to join us; players, coaches and volunteers at all our grassroots clubs at Sussex will be able to enter to represent their club whilst football remains suspended.

All matches in the knockout tournament will take place on Saturday 27 February. There will be separate tournaments for each console (PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One/Series X and PC). Entrants will be required to make an account on Challengermode, which will be used to create the tournament draw and will provide a safe and secure platform for players to arrange to play each other.
